Not really, we should have 6 points by now.

IMO Leeds were poor against Preston - Preston went down to 10 men early in the second half and Leeds were to one dimensional in the final third (something the coaches need to work on).

Preston nearly won it in the last bit they hit the cross bar and had a shot/cross that was close also in the last 5 minutes.

Preston were scrappy but they battled for everything and deserved a point and could have got all 3.

Leeds have some thinking to do - getting the right mix of players and work on how to create and finish off opportunities in the front third other than just crossing the ball to Woods which isn't going to cut it all the time.

On the plus side the new keeper for Leeds looked ok and the defence looked solid :wink:

yep I think there is a very strong possibility of there being issues - lets hope nothing major comes out of it.

Home games at Millwall, there is rarely anything major. Leeds fans will be escorted in and out of the stadium by coach or train. Coaches get a police escort until the motorway. Those travelling by train have a walkway from the away end straight to the station and the other entrance is the blocked so home fans can't get in. Leeds fans are at London Bridge before Millwall fans can even get into the station.

The only issue will be if Millwall have sold tickets in the lower tier of the away stand. Leeds will probably be limited to 2,500 tickets to ensure they're only in the upper tier.

The Den is probably the safest ground in the country for away fans now.

Always good to beat leeds, especially when they're totally played off the pitch.

Well they certainly played us off the pitch this time, that's for sure.

I thought it was the home team that was top of the league at one point. :oops:

Congratulations Giae, your team was best on the day.

At least we had an entertaining win last night against Burnley in the league cup but looking at the highlights it appeared we were lucky, Burnley missed a lot of chances they had.
